Feathers, Pearls and Pods

I am thinking about my new color scheme of soft tans and creams that I am putting together, and then my new fascination with feathers of all kinds, so my brain is on overload working with some new floral arrangements.



When I started playing, I just loved the mix of feathers, pearls and pods.


 Aren't pods of all kinds so interesting, and pearl picks are so fun to use.


 Throw in one beautiful hydrangea blossom - - - -


 and you have a fun mix of texture and color.




This is another feather arrangement that I am working on.  I will show you later.


Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.
